2013001-2

Law Tactical, the makers of the folding stock adapter, has turned their attention to rear sights for the AK-47.

The AKuracy rear sight can use glock and aftermarket glock rear sights.

As you can see in the info sheet below, the use of a Glock rear sight give the AK a similar sight picture to that of a Glock pistol.

The sight retails for $49.99. Glock rear sight not included.

    Just use an optic.

  • BrandonAKsALot

    Interesting idea. As much as I love the AK, the irons can be difficult to see at times, so I can see some merit in this.

  • Rog Uinta

    Maybe they should try making the product already in their lineup that everyone is clamoring for and unable to buy.

  • Vitsuas

    Should have just made it a peep sight. The Glock groupie bus keeps on rolling.

    • Esh325

      I don’t think peep sights really work quite as well if they are so far away.

    • Dracon1201

      They would be in a really crappy market, having to compete with Krebs and Tech Sights.

  • The AK’s rear sight notch is plenty wide. It neither needs to be wider, nor is the Glock’s rear sight designed to work with the AK’s front post.

    This is a baffling product; worse than a waste of fifty bucks, it will most likely make your AK less precise on the range.

    What about aftermarket Glock sights? None of those are designed to work with the AK’s post, either. Look at the peep aperture of a Garand or M16A2 rear sight. Notice how tiny it is. That aperture is designed to work with a front post about as big as the AK’s front post. The big difference is that the aperture itself is further away from your eye with the AK.

    Conceivably, could there not be a Glock rear sight out there that is just perfect for the AK’s front post? I guess, but how much money would you have to spend to find it? Why not buy a Kreb’s Custom, Mojo, or Techsights rear sight, or an optic, instead?

      Because unlike the AR-15 market, most Kalashnikovs don’t come with a rail system where you can put on whatever scope you want, dude. Being a gun reviewer, you should know this. And most people don’t like installing rails on the AK anyway; it messes with the Soviet industrial aesthetic.

      This product attempts to straddle both traditional and modern sensibilities by only switching out the rear sight. You can put any kind of “Glock” sight on the back, and i wonder if isn’t about to release a half-circle illuminated sight that fits the AK sight picture.

      • Dracon1201

        I think you don’t understand. Rails are exceptionally easy to add on for an AK. Good rails. Besides, those sights that Nathaniel mentioned are made to replace the rear sight, but are actually made for the AK, unlike Glock sights. “most people don’t like putting rails on their AKs” who are “Most people”? If the AK Files is any good indicator, you are so wrong.

          Most AK people do not know capitalist internet. 😛

      • Yallan

        Optics can be found by scanners, at least current U.S military is capable of this. Metal sights can’t be picked up enabling you to take your time aiming.. In addition pistol sights are adequate since almost all combat in urban locations occurs within 100 metres even sniping. Being quicker on target at a the cost of long range accuracy is amore than a fair trade.

        • Uniform223

          It all comes down to training. Yes the iron sights on the AR-15 or other sights like them are more adequately suited for precision and long range. I was taught that when engaging targets 75meters and in to engage with both eyes open with your “standard” iron sight on the M16/M4/AR-15 platform. Of course now a days with modern optics like red-dots and holos, it makes acquisition and engaging far easier.

      • iksnilol

        AKs usually come with an inbuilt rail, that chunk of metal on the left side isn’t for show.

      • Kreb’s, Mojos, and Techsights do not require rails.

        Also, many AKs come with scope rails.

        As a gun reviewer, I know these things. 😉

      “This is a baffling product; worse than a waste of fifty bucks, it will most likely make your AK less precise on the range.”

      If..If only there were a website that did product tests then we could *know* instead of guessing. Oh, who am I kidding, a website like that will probably only arrive when we all have flying cars.

  • Lance

    Only thing it need is the various ranges on the tang written on. other than that looks good.

  • Drew

    So what does this solve? The AK irons are still too far forward? Just to waste $50

  • Robert Griffith

    I like it. I hope that it will work with a TFO sight. I’ve been searching for a way to put one on an AK.

  • May

    But can it use Glock mags?

  • Reader

    Because when I think accuracy, I think of glock sights…

  • Giolli Joker

    At least the author is different, luckily no Alzheimer involved. 😛

  • iksnilol

    What somebody should do is make something like this just with a small piece of rail instead of the dovetail and of course mark ranges on the tang (or whatever it is called). That way you could combine the quick range adjustment with a red dot.
